Did you know that every sip of Legacy is a small part of a long and proud South African wine legend?
In 1957, a German winemaker working at Bellingham wine farm in Franschhoek was inspired to create a wine in the typical style of his home town of Johannisberg in Germany.
The softly sweet fruity white blended wine was immediately popular and fast became a favourite in South Africa.
Bellingham Johannisberger was not only famous for its delicious drinkability, but also for the famous bottle that was especially designed to follow the shape of the Groot Drakenstein mountain peak that towers over the original Bellingham homestead.
In fact, the instantly recognisable bottle was very often used as candle holders in Italian restaurants, bistros and cafés and Bellingham Johannisberger became entrenched and expected on every wine list for 4 decades creating a ‘Legacy’ for future generations of South Africa.
